Karrina Bauer, incoming freshman and business marketing major, is attending Bethel this fall over 1,600 miles from her hometown of Las Vegas. 

Q: Where you were born, where did you grow up, and where do you live now? 

A: I was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. I’ve lived here my whole life.

Q: How did you first hear about Bethel? What made you choose to attend school so far from home?

A: I wanted to go to a Christian based college and be close to family. When I was searching online for colleges, there weren’t many Christian universities close to home. My dad’s side of the family lives in Minnesota and when I saw Bethel, there was just something about the community that seemed like a family and that’s what I desired. It’s also only like 10 to 15 minutes from my grandma so that’s a plus!

Q: What’s your major/minor?

A: I plan on majoring in business marketing and minoring in graphic design.

Q: Do you plan on playing sports or being involved in music or theater at Bethel?

A: I’ve been a part of cheer and gymnastics my whole life, and though I would love to do that in college, Bethel doesn’t offer that, so I will be solely focused on academics and maybe try out for the worship band.
